Foldable Walking Aid

The product is used by stroke victims with mobility problems. The user would be strapped into the leg guides first, then hooked onto the main support body. The frame supports the user in a standing position, whilst the hinged leg guides allow leg movement (supported to prevent injury). Wide wheels enhance stability while assisting the user in moving from one place to another.The system is similar to a baby walker, the difference being having details integrated to prevent injury while learning to walk again.

Project done in collaboration with Tham Ming Yoong (Bachelor of Engineering- University of Birmingham)
